I don't have the same problem, maybe is a old problem. You could copy the file manually anyway.

I am building a Lubuntu system on a USB flash drive and I am able to install grub on the flash drive with grub-install. I would expect that after running grub-install the grub.cfg generated with update-grub would be installed in the device and folders as generated by grub-install. This seems not to be the case though.

Also when booting the OS on the flash drive I would expect update-grub would update the grub.cfg that was used to boot the system, but also that doesn't seem to work.

I am new to booting with EFI/grub and I also don't fully understand the design philosophy behind grub, so this may not be a bug, but somehow I would expect update-grub to work differently and/or take also parameters like --grub-directory and/or --boot-directory and/or --efi-directory about which grub.cfg is to be updated.
